shark_teeth_445For the twenty-first time, the BB&T Venice Sharks Tooth Festival will be held from April 12th - 14th. This festival is the perfect event for all area residents to enjoy everything from great good to fossil vendors and even arts and crafts. Whether you want to come out with the family or you just want to stop by with a group of friends, this is an event you cannot miss.

Since the city of Venice is known as the "Shark's Tooth Capital of the World", they hold a festival every year to celebrate these teeth. Millions of teeth are found throughout the beaches of this area every year and each spring the Sharks Tooth Festival kicks off.

Food vendors will serve up some of the best BBQ in the area, along with fresh seafood and many other choices.
